American Cherry

Botanical Name:

Prunus serotina


North America

Also known as: 

Black Cherry, North American Cherry

Prized for its rich color and fine graining, American Cherry is commonly seen in American cabinetry and furniture. The fine, satiny texture of the wood is uniform and frequently wavy, with distinctive gum veins and pockets. The lustrous heartwood ranges from light to reddish brown. American Cherry is extremely light sensitive, so there is a strong color change and darkening over a short period of time when the wood is first exposed to light. It is not considered a very hard specie.
